If you have been arrested in Brooklyn for drunk driving you will be arraigned at the Brooklyn Criminal Courthouse at 120 Schermerhorn St. It usually taked between 24-48 hours between the time you are arrested to see a judge in Brooklyn. This is due to the backlog of the amount of people being processed at the same time.

Many people will feel that this is the most unpleasant part of the process. You will be in jail in a crowded cell for one or two days with many people who lack the basics in hygiene. The food is terrible and you must usually stand during this entire process because of the lack of seats. This is not the place for you want to spend any amount of time in. Once you see the judge, if it is your first arrest you will most likely be released and told to come back on another date. If bail is set, it will probably be in the range of $1000 and $10,000.00.
